Allow Query Input Devices to return all available Devices

Status: New

LabVIEW's Query Input Devices uses LVInput.dll to return information about the Keyboard(s), Mouse(s), and Joystick(s).  However, it appears that the number of Joystick entries returned is limited to 8, whereas on several machines that I've examined, the "joystick" device can be present in slot 10 (as noted by DxDiag's Input test, which otherwise matches what LabVIEW returns in the first 8 slots).


Can this function, which returns an Array, be modified to return as many entries as the DxDiag utility returns for DirectInput?  This would facilitate using multiple joystick-like devices as control units using standard LabVIEW procedures.
